Police say a fatal crash that had a portion of the Capital Beltway closed for several hours Friday was fatal, and involved an 18-year-old police cadet.
The Outer Loop of the Capital Beltway is closed between Colesville Road and Georgia Avenue after a tractor-trailer side swiped a police cruiser and another car involved in a traffic stop around 2 a.m. Monday.
Virginia State Police are investigating an accident in which a pedestrian was hit on I-495 by one of their own.
Expect major traffic tie-ups on the Inner Loop of I-495 Tuesday morning due to an overturned tractor trailer.
A new ramp from westbound Interstate 66 to the southbound I-495 is about to open in northern Virginia.
